  1. GM’s avoidance of responsibility will prevent me from getting another GM vehicle even though I have yet to experience these particular problems on my 05 LXR. GM’s refusal to let any aftermarket company produce headlight assemblies that are clearly defective and GM no longer produces for a car that cost nearly $100,000 is reason enough to abandon GM.

  2. Sorry but this is a BS explanation. My wife’s Captiva 3.0L sags to the point is unsafe to drive. It almost stalls during low speed maneuvers and when pulling out in front of oncoming traffic. I have driven several other GM 3.0/3.6L models with the same issue though not as bad as mine. Two dealerships have shown me the same explanation as if this will in some way justify a known problem. In reality it makes really easy to buy something other than GM vehicles in the future. This is the last GM vehicle in my driveway and I can’t wait to get rid of it.
